Going to the Shaw Festival in Niagara-on-the-lake would make a memorable weekend getaway or a day trip. Every year there is a show that is perfect for families with young children and teenagers. This year it is The Horse and His Boy based on C.S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia. Last year, we watched the Magician's Nephew also based on the children's fantasy novel Narnia. My children have read the novels and watched a few of the movies, they were excited to see how the story would be acted on stage.

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 had an exceptional design which made it one of the most successful models in its lineup. With the introduction of the 2019 CX-5 series, Mazda has taken this model to the next level by adding a Signature top-tier trim level and giving it a power-up by introducing a turbocharged SKYACTIV-G 2.5T engine similar to its big brother the CX-9.

Over the years, I have experimented with different spices while cooking and baking - either adding or swapping it to get flavours we enjoy. Reflecting back, I feel my journey to understand, know, and appreciate different spices was because of my opportunities to experiment and include it into our meals. This has made me feel comfortable in deciding which flavours would work well, and which spices I want to add.

We loved watching Cirque du Soleil Volta last year when it came to Toronto. The experience of watching the skillful acrobatic performances, dances, movements, music, and narrative was something that made it a memorable experience. We are excited that this year Cirque du Soleil will be performing their show Corteo in Toronto at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena (formerly the Air Canada Centre) from December 12 - 16, 2018 for a limited run of eight performances.

We love road trips! We have been driving to explore many provinces in Canada, and find it to be a fun way to see a variety of different attractions, cities, and towns. This experience gives us an opportunity to get to know people and history of these places. However, road trips don't come cheap. One of the main costs of road trips is filling the gas tank, especially when gas prices hike up all the time. Now we have a chance to enter and win FREE GAS for a year with Desjardins Insurance. All you have to do is simply get a quote to enter! #GetAQuoteAndWin

We love being creative every opportunity we get. Sometimes, we find the need for a little inspiration to spark our creative energy, and we got this when we went to see the play The Music Man, and took a tour of the Costume Warehouse during our time in Stratford and Perth County.

While enjoying the activities in this area, we stayed at Forest Motel and Woodland Retreat located in Stratford. It is a family friendly woodland retreat close to all the amenities, a few minutes from the Stratford Festival Theatre.

We were extremely thrilled to experience Whirlpool Jet tours at Niagara Falls, Ontario this summer! We first saw how fun it looked during our Niagara Bell Cruise. Glad we waited for our kids to be a little older, so everyone can have a memorable time. It was worth the wait, as we had an awesome thrilling experience.

We were excited to drop-in at Crock a Doodle in Niagara Falls for an afternoon of fun. This pottery themed creative space with friendly staff made us feel welcomed. This studio is setup in a way that makes it comfortable for children to sit down and paint. For adults, it gives an opportunity to let go of everything and be a kid again. We loved it!

While at Fern Resort, the only thing we thought of was vacationing! The mood is all set from the time you walk into the resort till the time you check-out. This resort is all inclusive, so all the meals and activities are taken care of. This made my husband and I feel at ease since we didn't need to worry about the meals, and were able to participate in the activities we wanted to, and children were able to do activities they wanted to.
